Overview of the Apple II Piracy Community of the early to mid 1980's, presented at the 5th Rubi-Con Conference in Detroit Michigan. Subjects covered include the unique aspects of the Apple II microcomputer architecture and culture, the methods of removing copy protection from software packages of the Apple II, and a very large helping of trivia. To illustrate some aspects of the "crack screens" and other Apple II graphics, an Apple II clone and several programs were provided. Speech delivered on March 29, 2003.
Also included in this collection are a large collection of Apple II Crack Screens and a number of files written by and about Apple II pirates, including a heavily-modified study of "The Real Pirates' Guide".
